On the road to Lesotho

Fences, fences everywhere
I don't want to sound negative about South Africa, but this is how I experienced driving through this wonderful country. The views are amazing but it seems that nowhere you can go into the wild, the sideroads to the left or right are always blocked by gates and fences and it looks like the whole of SA is private property. After spending so many months in West and Central Africa, this is realy hard to get used to, although you can have a wonderfull holiday here, an adventure it is not. And I don't consider myself a tourist anyway, I'm a traveler, and that's a distinct difference.
So I needed to find some rougher place, where I could buy some streetfood or go wildcamping and luckily I quickly found it in the form of the mountain kingdom of Lesotho.
